Product Details
Easy to grow in a moist but well drained soil with a little shade, particularly in summer as the sun will scorch the leaves. The foliage is the typical three lobed affair and held on wiry petioles all originating from a central point. The flowers are the obvious attraction and these plants have a secure following in the plant world with more and more new hybrids coming along every year. This particular hybrid is a fully double, the outer petals being the largest, strong pink in colour and the inner petals being a little smaller but a paler shade of pink as the outer (often classed as a red). Fewer flowers are produced from these plants when they are young because they are double but they do last considerably longer.
